The preparations are in full swing in the run-up to one of the most popular traditional shows of its kind in the county.

There will be the all-important show tent and marquee on the village green, plus a silver band, a dog show, bottle tombola, stalls, children’s games and raffle prizes worth £1,000.

Nicky Smith is one of the organisers and said: “For a little village the show really packs a punch. We’d love as many people as possible to join the fun. Also it’s not too late to enter flowers, vegetables or craft items in the show, all details are on the village website www.southnewington.co.uk

Admission to the show is £2.50 for adults and £1 for children. To enter produce for judging it is £1 for the adult categories and 50p for the children’s categories.
